Craft new items from old loot to ensure the team is properly equipped to face new challenges and threats. The path will be fraught with difficulties and the unexpected, each of the game’s seven chapters will require a perfectly balanced but different team in order for the player to progress. There won’t be bitter cold places only, the City of Icenaire
hides many different locations to discover
Since the release on Steam, Devespresso have listened carefully to player feedback and implemented a wide variety of new updates which has garnered a very positive Steam rating for the game’s most recent patch. The console version will include all significant updates and improvements.
